The cost of getting your car e-tested is going down April 1st.

But a new exclusive investigation by Global TV is now bringing up the question of why the program should exist at all.

The investigation showed that in 2012, 300,000 2005 model year vehicles were tested by the Drive Clean Program. Of all of those that tested, 95% passed.

Drivers paid out $10 Million to have their vehicle tested.

The investigation showed that some vehicles had pass rates of almost 100%

Right now, the Drive Clean test costs drivers $35 dollars. As of April, it goes down to $30.
